Set up your Android TV and remote

After you get your Android TV, you’ll need to set it up and connect your remote.

Before you start

Check that you have:

  • A Wi-Fi Internet connection
  • A Google Account
  • Element Android TV

Step 1: Connect your Android TV

  1. As Android is built into your TV, plug it into a socket and turn it on.

Step 2: Pair your remote

  1. Turn on your Element TV.
  2. To select the right input for your Android TV device, press the Source or Input. You should find an image of a TV, a remote and a timer. 
  3. Follow the on-screen instructions to pair your remote. 

When the remote connects to the TV, you’ll see a tick mark on the screen. If it doesn’t connect right away, try Step 3 again.

Step 3: Set up your Android TV

There are 3 options to set up your TV:

  1. Quick Start using an Android phone 
  2. Set up with your remote
  3. Set up with a phone or computer

​If you haven’t already, choose a language before starting the sign-up process.

Set up with Quick Start-

  1. When your TV says, 'Quickly set up your TV with your Android phone?' use your remote to choose Continue or Yes.
    • If you don’t have an Android phone, select one of the other setup options below.
  2. On your Android phone, open the preinstalled Google app.
  3. Type or say 'set up my device'.
  4. Follow the instructions on your phone until you see a code. Make sure that the same code appears on your TV.
  5. On your phone, tap the name of your TV when it appears.

To finish setup, follow the instructions on your TV.​

 Note: Your TV will automatically sign in to your Google Account and connect to the same Wi-Fi as your phone.
